Synopsis: In 1975, as a young Peace Corps volunteer, Kevin Bubriski (born 1954) was sent to Nepal's northwest Karnali Zone, the country's remotest and most economically depressed region. He walked the length and breadth of the Karnali, conducting feasibility studies for gravity-flow drinking water systems and overseeing their construction. He also photographed the villagers he lived among, producing an extraordinary series of 35mm and large-format black-and-white images. Over more than three decades, Bubriski has returned many times to Nepal, maintaining his close association with the country and its people. Nepal 1975-2011 presents this remarkable body of work--photographs that document Nepal's evolution over a 36-year period from a traditional Himalayan culture to the globalized society of today. Both visual anthropology and cultural history, it is also a succinct look at one photographer's aesthetic evolution.

Review: In the exhibition’s accompanying volume, “Nepal, 1975-2011,” Bubriski describes his 20-year-old self as “optimistic, energized, curious, eager” upon encountering “a wholly new and mysterious world.” A sense of discovery informs all these photographs, the recent ones no less than early ones. Yet a sense of discovery can get tricky, producing chagrin, superiority, or (worst of all) both. Bubriski’s photographs lack those qualities. (Mark Feeney The Boston Globe)
